The ceremony was attended by Guest-of-Honour NTUC Club Chairman, also NTUC Secretary-General, Lim Swee Say (centre). Together with NTUC Club Chief Executive Officer, Yeo Khee Leng (right), and Chief Operating Officer, Lim Eng Lee (left), they pieced together a three-part backdrop depicting the integrated landscape of Downtown East before a robotic hydraulic hammer drilled into the ground at the former Escape Theme Park site.
